Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : net-snmp (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_net_snmp)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80706


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- Net-SNMP 5.7.1 and earlier, when AgentX is registering to handle a MIB and processing GETNEXT requests, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash or infinite loop, CPU consumption, and hang) by causing the AgentX subagent to timeout. (CVE-2012-6151)

- The AgentX subagent in Net-SNMP before 5.4.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang) by sending a multi-object request with an Object ID (OID) containing more subids than previous requests, a different vulnerability than CVE-2012-6151.
